Overview
Our Taste of Oslo Walking Tour is a guided walking tour that aims to let you experience Oslo like a local, and sample traditional Norwegian dishes, snacks and drinks. The guide takes you through local spots and gems that are hard to come by on your own, and shows you the best of traditional Norwegian food, culture and history.

Truly the best way to see the city and try traditional Norwegian food. Take a walk around the city and get to know places full of tradition, history and fun facts. See what Oslo is made of and get an enriching experience that will make your tour a lot more worthy.

Obs: If you did a booking before 10th of October 2018, you still have to pay 550 Kr, this is because you only paid for the guiding services and food & drinks has to be payed once meeting the guide.  550 Kr is the price.

Highlights
  • Discover Oslo's best restaurants missed by most tourists
  • Get lesser-known insight into the local food scene from your guide
  • Try traditional Norwegian foods, including cheese, fish, and waffles
  • Sample local beer and aquavit
What to Expect
Meet your guide and the rest of your group in downtown Oslo. Before embarking upon your tasting tour, there's time for a visit to a traditional Norwegian clothing (bunad) shop to learn about Norwegian apparel and traditions. Your tour continues to various stops, tasting dishes at each location, such as cheese, fish, and a traditional waffle-and-brown-cheese dessert at a small coffee shop. You also have the opportunity to sample some local Norwegian beers at a cozy bar, as well as a taste of aquavit, a strong, flavored Scandinavian spirit. With a full belly (and some insider foodie tips from your guide), your tour concludes in the city center.

We loved the Taste of Oslo tour. Our group was small enough (five) that is was easy to get to know the other travelers and our guide Ivana. She did an excellent job showing us the city and teaching us about local cuisine.
